I've said it before, I'll say it again. I hate camping. I hate everything about it. If I had to say what I hate most it would be that it is impossible to feel clean while camping. Second runner-up in my hate list is the hundreds of spiders crawling all over me while I sleep. The list goes on and I could rattle things off without even thinking very hard.
(maybe you've noticed?) I'm a positive person. It is not in my nature to rattle off lists of things I hate. I would much rather rattle off lists of things that I love (and show you pictures).
Being a positive person, I try to spin negative situations (like turning myself into a real live version of the Peanut's character Pigpen.)
It took some work, some creativity and lots of packing but here is what camping the Amy way looks like...
I have lots of ideas already on how to make next year's trip even better. Who knows...someday I might even learn to love camping as much as Rich does. Until then, I will keep my complaining to a minimum and do whatever I can to make it as enjoyable as possible.
p.s. I sent out an email to all of those who requested instructions for the money book. Be sure to check your bulk or junk mail folders because it might have turned up there. If you didn't get it, just send me an email (email@example.com) and I'll get them out to you.
